10-Years Satellite-Based Snow Cover Climatology of Switzerland

The Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) was established in 1992 to ensure that the observations necessary to address climate-related issues are defined, obtained and made available to all potential users. Primarily, the GCOS observations should assist Parties in meeting their responsibilities under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) as well as provide the systematic observations needed by the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
